BILLET FAMILIES NEEDED FOR 2015-2016 SEASON

The Victoria Cougars are looking for families or individuals who may be interested in billeting a player or players for the 2015-2016 season. Billet families are considered part of the Cougars team and are crucial to the success of our program.

Billeting can be a very exciting and rewarding experience. As a billet family you play a very important role in the life of the player. By opening your home to the player you provide them with a stable and secure home away from home. Players can be great role models for young family members to show what can be achieved with hard work and dedication. There are many long lasting friendships that develop between players and billets.

Expectations

All potential billet families must undergo an in-house interview and provide a criminal record check for all people in the household over the age of 19. Prior to the assignment of a player to the home, a team official will visit the billet home to inspect the accommodation and discuss any concerns the family may have.

When a family volunteers to host a player they agree to provide room and board. Billet Hosts must be able to provide the player with his own room where they can have their privacy and a quiet place to study. Bedrooms must include a suitable bed, a desk for studying and a dresser and/or closet for personal items. Players will also need access to laundry facilities, internet and television.

Hosting a player also includes providing nutritious food and healthy snacks. Hockey is a high intensity sport with stringent training both on and off the ice including both aerobic and strength training. These players will be participating in competitive training daily, consequently, these players require more food than the average teenager. As a family, you would follow your normal routine for mealtime; however regular meals enjoyed together at set times is the preferred practice.

Billet families receive a monthly stipend to help offset the cost of the player living in the billet home. In addition, billet families are provided 2 season passes to our 24 home games.

If you are interested in becoming a billet and would like more information please email the Victoria Cougars Junior Hockey Club at
